Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

It's almost identical to frenzy gameplay :lol:

Great game and very nail biting when trying to make a dash across half the screen.

Liking the vector graphics and music / sound FX.

I watched the vid and consumed a bottle of wine... managed to get above 100k for first time, need some more practice I think.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R8 - Zenon

Another slow slog to level 2, there is no pattern to playing this, just stay alive as long as possible, I find slow and steady is better than speeding along.

Please check that I've done it correctly. Jools has been given credit for the win. This was shortly after my wife passed so I may not have been very clear in what I had been doing.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R8 - Zenon

Ah, this is a bit better..... Hey Ed, Have you seen the posts regarding round 4? I think we may need a recount as the scores in the overall high score table don't match up with the scores for that round and some of the scores and positions are wrong. http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=46&...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R8 - Zenon

I know I picked this game but omg it is brutal! Very random and twitchy, I'm playing in beebEm so I am doing a hard reset after every game or if I have a bad start... red laser seems best, strategy so far is just go slow and try to avoid being wiped out by things dropping from the sky.

Re: High Score Challenge - Season 9

The scores for Corporate Climber might need tweaking, I won that one? Checking against the high scores for round four it appears all of the numbers used in the overall table are out of whack, maybe an incorrect column copied or pasted? Couple of other bits: Richard Toohey is missing from the score ...

Thanks Ed! I really enjoyed Creepy Cave, my kids enjoyed it too, we kept calling it Creepy Crave :lol:

Very tight on the scoreboard now with just 20 points separating the top 3 :shock:

EDIT: Pending recount for round 4.

Lost my first life on scene 19 with a silly jump, bonus was up to 37,000 :shock:

Played this one with no sound and restarted a few times after dismal starts.

Nice score Ed! The last jump is across to the platform in case you were trying to jump somewhere else?

Indeed :lol:

Made it past scene 20 and up to level 2, scene 14. Second level everything is a little faster so all the timing is off, surprised I made it that far but seemed to be one of those in the groove games.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Tip for scene 04 , run right straight away and you will always avoid the acid drop , haven't found a foolproof way of getting through scene 05 seems to be pot luck. Will try that out for scene 4, for scene 5 that first drip is a bit hit and miss, I usually take a couple of steps forward and then wa...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Did a few runs this morning and got a small score increase, only made it to level 10 but had a better bonus run through the previous levels. The blank scores are where I quit usually after bombing at level 4 or 5 with the sketchy blood drip timing. Feeling I can go much higher with the 'right' run. ...

My technique for the blood drops on level 6, get the crosses, then make it back down without dying as sometimes happens :evil: then let the conveyor move you along just before drip one and press left to pause... wait for the right moment just as the splash is about to disappear and walk right and st...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

I can see this is one of those games that once you solve a level, the higher scores you achieved early on will be much harder to achieve once you become 'proficient' at the early levels. If you can make it to level 6 without losing a life your score will get to around 90k after collecting the four ...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Bit higher got to level 10, noticed that the bonus cross stacks with each one picked up and resets to 1000 if you lose a life. The bonus is collected next time you pick up a cross rather than at the end of each level.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Scene 6 is crazy hard timing. BTW Ed, which jump are you having trouble with? If it's the one i'm thinking on scene 3, once you make it past the blood and collect the cross, you'll need to jump back up to the left and then a mega jump to the right to get to the upper platform. The CTD initials in my...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R6 - Beach Head

Had another crack and finished all levels, managed to do the last canon with only two tanks, not sure if that is good or not and with my 20/20 hindsight the dev should of given a finishing bonus based on less tanks used or tanks left over.
